Jem remembers Cordelia and Alastair in in final ‘Ghosts of the Shadow Market’ short story

Not only did Cassandra Clare share a new (and really sad) Queen of Air and Darkness snippet yesterday – read it here – she also took to her tumblr to share a brand new snippet from her short story collection Ghosts of the Shadow Market. In the following passage, which is from Forever Fallen and was co-written by Cassie and Sarah Rees Brennan, Jem remembers his cousins Cordelia and Alastair:

There were bluebells in the wood beyond the stone walls, and oak trees were dropping green stars in the grass. This garden made Jem think of long-ago children he would have saved if he could: his Cordelia, her sword at her back and her arms full of bright flowers, none so bright as her smile when she saw him, and Cordelia’s brother Alastair with his long fingers over his bitter eyes. Jem had only ever known their faces through magic in the dark. He had never seen either of them with his eyes open, and he never would.

There’s no synopsis yet, but we do know that it is set after Queen of Air and Darkness.
Forever Fallen is the tenth and final short story that is going to be in the print edition of Ghosts of the Shadow Market, which is published next summer.
